Managed by Newry & Mourne Co-op and Enterprise Agency in partnership with REACT, Barnardo’s and the SELB and funded by the Big Lottery, the Work4Uplus programme of activities is aimed at helping young people, who are ‘at risk’ of becoming disengaged from education, employment or training.

We offer extra support and training to those ‘at risk’ young people who are unable to make the most of their skills, we will help them stay on track by overcoming the barriers, that stop them getting into or staying in, education, employment or training.
